    Field of Reeds is one of my fav albums of all time. It’s such a polarizing piece of work that for some grabs you and rips out your heart and for others it does absolutely nothing. It never ceases to blow my mind how this album isn’t up there with an album like Kid A. Always nice to meet another TNP convert. ❤️

    Wow this is also my fave of the 2010s. Just behind Goat's World Music and The Go! Team's Semi Circle. With the s/t Embrace album and Shirley Collins Lodestar rounding out the top 5.

    I visited a show of theirs in 2019 for their "inside the rose" album. It was a good live show and very energetic performance of theirs in a small venue with relatively few visitors. The crowd was not very good and I felt like Jack personally hated me for not dancing and being exactly behind the crowd (I am very tall and had a bad year back then so I didn'T get into it). Besides that, watch them life if you can.

    Good stuff

    I listened to the title track and at first I thought this is definitely not for me, but I kept it playing while I was reading something completely unrelated and the music took me somewhere else. It sounds absolutely beautiful.

    this album holds a sentimental place in my memory for what was going on around me at the time. i remember being disappointed by it because it was so different from their previous album but in a way it marked a turning point for me. thanks for the review!

    About 99% of the time i don’t care to listen to this album but 1% of the time I think it’s a masterpiece. For me, ‘the dream my bones dream’ by Eiko Ishibashi is very reminiscent of this. Also great (1% of time).

    This must be the most compositionally innovative popular music record of the last decade, and I'm a composition guy so it might just be my favourite. Thank you for introducing me to this brilliant and unique record

    I didn't really click with this album sadly, the same way I don't click with Talk Talk either.. I don't know why I don't enjoy listening to those albums, I certainly appreciate and respect them, but they just don't stick with me sadly.. I will say however, ORGAN ETERNAL is absolutely beautiful, I wish that wasn't the only song that I loved and truly moved me! After reviewing some of the comments, I am going to check out the album Hidden and maybe I'll have better luck with that! 🙂 Awesome video, also, I love love love Hex – Bark Psychosis ! Thanks for mentioning it and as always thanks Oliver for being kewll 8)

    Normally find it quite hard to form an opinion on any music on the first listen, but Field Of Reeds immediately resonated with me.

    Great feeling when you discover something amazing you could have otherwise missed out on.

    Great to have you back Oliver, cheers!

    So glad you consider this album your best album of the decade. Honestly i think the same. Is such a pity that this band and this album is kinda criminally underrated especially in the U.S:

    On your first essentials video you mentioned you'd avoid some of the more "obvious" essential albums. Have you thought of making a video briefly mentioning those albums? Maybe a short list of "classics" or something like that.
